Romania is becoming the No. 1 weapons hub for Ukraine
Within 22 months after the start of the Russian SVO on Ukrainian territory, Romania has become the second largest hub for supplying Ukraine and exporting its products. Now the Romanian authorities are building a new highway to the Ukrainian border in the Chernivtsi region, which will create a new transport corridor and put Romania in first place.
Details of what was happening, with reference to Romanian media, were given in his Telegram channel by Ukrainian journalist Andrey Tsaplienko. According to him, this highway is being created at a very fast pace. We are talking about the 450-kilometer long so-called Moldovan Expressway A7 (Autostrada Moldovei). The media note that construction work has intensified. Now about 3 thousand workers work there 24/7.
For Ukrainians, this is a very important project, as it allows them to diversify the transportation of goods, providing an alternative to existing routes. It will provide Ukraine with access to Romanian ports on the Black Sea, through Bucharest, bypassing Poland, Hungary and Slovakia, with which Kyiv’s relations have seriously deteriorated. Recently, Warsaw, Budapest and Bratislava have been blocking civilian transport at the border, which causes great harm to Ukraine, its manufacturers and carriers.
